    This case, it is not about winning. It is just getting what he deserved, his paid for his work done. My guess is that they probably were in a haste to get it out and don't really meant to do it this way. Just graciously accept and quietly move on. Glad how it ends well here for you. Btw, the title doesn't seems appropriate.

    Since they agree to pay and apologized, I think TS can close this chapter.

    Good to know u r getting your dues.

    Lesson learned is never give high res file until it's confirmed deal!!

    always give a low res jpeg file (200kb) will do.

    People, please don't jump into litigation so easily. It's costly to you & time consuming, always take it as the last resort & weigh the value of it. Is the outcome worth it & you may not win the case even if you are the victim. Best to have a discussion to sort things out. Worst scenario is to move-on & a lesson learnt.

    it might just mean that there is a need for a simpler, or at least perhaps more approachable and available option besides what we have now.

    it was an issue that was raised during the ASCR forum too, because infringement of copyrights is pretty much a widespread practice, where most people often say its not worth the time and therefore let the wrong go to pass...

    No doubt about it but a simple job by a lawyer is going to cost you at least S$1.5K & court fees are extra, anything that goes to High court will set you back 5-6 figures easily. I would leave all these to big firms who are prepared to fight & lawyers are only happy to hear the cash register "chink"

    I've also seen people win the case but the magazine or company closes down & declares bankrupt. Sighhh.

    Meanwhile, we all get fleeced one way or another, it's part of growing up especially in the design world. Nothing wrong with voicing out, it may all end up well.
